At the end of this hike you come to Morning Glory Natural Bridge. The arch is only separated from the cliff behind it by 15 feet, so it is not as spectacular or photogenic as some other arches in the area that are not as big. When you stand directly underneath the span 75 feet above you, it is a very impressive piece of rock. On the list it is ranked 5th largest span in the world.

I'd give 3.5 stars if I could. It's a really pretty hike that follows a relatively slow creek, but the arch at the end is awesome, it's longer than most arches we saw in the park. Fun trail

Beautiful stream, lots of shade. The end under Morning Glory Arch is a great place to rest and relax before the hike back. Prepare to cross the stream multiple times but your feet can probably remain dry (in summer). HUGE thickets of poison ivy right by the trail - watch out!

Very pretty. Great for a hot day as the river follows the trail. Doggie fun for sure.

Great trail for a day hike. Plenty of wildflowers and the trail is in reasonable condition.
